Additional Information about Pope Francis' Papal Pectoral Cross
The details of the cross are rooted in the Gospel of Luke. That is, the parable of the good shepherd and the lost sheep. Luke 15:4-7
"What man among you having a hundred sheep and losing one of them would not leave the ninety-nine in the desert and go after the lost one until he finds it?"
In the center is the figure of a man who represents Jesus, the good shepherd, who is carrying the lost sheep around his neck while the other sheep follow closely. At the very top of the cross is a dove coming down which represents the Holy Spirit coming down from God the Father to God the Son and helping out those who are lost and in darkness and bringing them new life! The linear style is intended to be a symbol for a new ecclesiastical era, a poor Church among the poor, as Pope Francis has indicated.
